kS3 Thai

The Thai curriculum at SIH promotes an enquiry based approach to learning to develop thinking skills and encourage intellectual engagement. The curriculum is divided into four main strands: Reading, Writing, Speaking & Listening.  At SIH it is very important that students learn the Thai language.  Despite being an International school whose medium of learning is English it is vital that students study Thai language and culture throughout their school years.  At SIH we offer two different levels for Thai classes.

Thai First Language

We offer Thai First Language lessons to pupils with spoken Thai at mother tongue level.  

Thai Foreign Language

We also offer Thai as a Foreign Language lessons to pupils who do not speak Thai at mother tongue level.

Our aims

At SIH the Thai curriculum aims for students to:

  • become confident communicators, able to apply their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills effectively in everyday situations and in studying a range of subjects

  • see themselves as readers, engaging with a range of texts for information and for pleasure, including texts from different times and cultures

  • see themselves as writers, using the written word clearly and creatively for a range of different audiences and purposes

  • develop speaking and listening skills for effective presentation and collaboration, sharing and responding to ideas to achieve a shared understanding or goal

  • develop a broad vocabulary and an understanding of how to apply grammar and linguistic conventions appropriately

  • develop skills to evaluate spoken and written texts, making decisions about how convincingly they represent different values and opinions.​
